    Anybody know about mercedees or audi diesels?

    Post by spartman on Sun Jun 23, 2013 12:33 pm

    Went walking through a pullit yard looking for a part to fix my moms car and came across a couple of interesting finds.

    One was a 74 Mercedes 220D with a stick shift and a 84 Audi 80 with a 1.9 (i think) diesel hooked to a fwd tranny.


    Any one know anything about em other than hp/torque stats? 

    I know neither one is real powerful, but for the prices listed at the yard I could have the engines for about 200 bux with all the accessories on em.

    Was thinking I might even use the Mercedes tranny if it would work.

    i think the 200d would be an economical fix for a bumpside--not a hotrod setup--but the smileage should be good--about as basic as a combustion engine comes--the bump should weigh less than the MB, so u could make a gain there--the only drawback might be paying for the benz parts, but given the price of any part these days....my experience has been it's usually a fuel pump issue that gets them down--i owned a 200d for a spell and that was it's problem--was moving and sold it to the GF's brother--after a new pump it was good to go

    The MB would make a good grease burner. Not much on power, you'd need 12 gears to get a bump up to speed, not sure then even if it could pull 2 ton 55 mph.

    if a guy could find a ud engine and trans(auto) it would make a bump stand up and talk--guy i worked for had one--i always wanted that setup in a scout, but they are big enuff to power a travelall--500,000 miles is no sweat--his was an early 90's and was barren of most computer controls

    on the other hand fossil fuel powered stuff is soon to be scrap Very Happy
